    Magical

    I'm not a hardcore Classical music guy. I only know a handful of composers. But that shouldn't stop me from liking sonatas and symphonies, right? I enjoy listening to Beethoven's Ninth Symphony--it's the most uplifting piece of music I've ever heard. I have some of Mozart and...

    When I Was Young...

    When I was young, up until my teens, alot of the music I heard was at my Grandmothers, she would listen to Tchaikovsky, Mozart, Beethoven etc etc. I used to dance with her and her husband, I would feel like I was a ballerina or a fairy. I love the classics from the ballet, like...

    Rare Composers

    Taste

    I like the romantics. Chopin, Mahler, Beethoven. Brahms is aight. Tchaikovsky was always a bit too Russian for me. JSB is the man. Such wonderful complexity to his music... and then there's the modern stuff. Schoenberg was a genius. I like Barber too, beyond just his Adagio...

    I Love Classical Music.

    When I was small my Mum took me to see Tchaikovsky's 1812 Overture, being performed with real cannons. Still kinda regret I don't remember it that well. Rock on classical music!

    While I'm by no means an expert

    and connoiseur of classical music, I enjoy it from time to time. Probably my favorite piece at the time is Dance of the Knights aka Montagues and Capulets by Sergei Prokofiev.And nobody still does it better than the Russians! Sadly, all the Bolshoi Ballet videos seem to have...

    Carmina Burana

    Carmina Burana is definitely something I love to listen to. Apart from being mostly Latin (which I love) also the music is great. I don't listen to classical music very often. But I definitely appreciate an artist's talent. Be it classical music or electronical.

    I am listening to Chopin right now.

    The great composers like him, van Beethoven, Bach, Haydn or Mozart have composed such great master pieces - nobody in today´s time could compose such fantastic, emotional pieces like the great composers of the past.

    WA Mozart

    I can listen to his piano concertos all day. There is something distinctly mesmerising about the music and I am thrilled to listen to it. I have even made love to Mozart.

    Uplifting and Relaxing.

    I like to listen to Mozart and Tchachovski, it can be both relaxing or uplifting depending on your mood and where you want to go with your mood.
